Standards and Decision Diagrams
Reliability Centered Maintenance decision diagrams are utilized in SAE JA1011, MSG-3 and MIL-STD-2173(AS) to provide a logical process for workgroups to determine what type of maintenance strategy to adopt for a given failure cause. The diagrams ask questions which often require analysis before a conclusion may be reached.
In addition these diagrams follow a sequential process which may not be appropriate in identifying the optimal task or combinations of tasks for a given failure cause. However, RCMCost provides the full flexibility required to allow users to quickly compare the effects of different practical maintenance strategies and condition monitoring using well-known scientific methods.
The RCMCost module may be used to produce reports similar to those in the SAE JA1011, MSG-3 and MIL-STD-2173(AS) standards. Reports may contain FMECA data, maintainability data, RCM decision data etc.
